Re: I dont know how you do it...(bedsharing)

If ds2 gets on my side I just move him back to his. He never wakes up. He doesn't squirm that much though. Since we bed-share from the beginning I think they get use to where their boundaries are.

Re: I dont know how you do it...(bedsharing)

I think I would say the exact same thing if I had not been bedsharing since birth. No way could I get used to the way he sleeps now if we jumped into bedsharing now. But since he has been in bed with us since he was new, I am used to the way he sleeps and can sleep through the normal wiggles and squiggles (and feet in my face).

When DS2 arrived, I had to kick DS1 out of our bed after a couple of months. Since I was more awake with DS2 being in the bed, I was more aware of DS1's sleep habits, and they were NOT conducive to sleep at all. He graduated to a toddler bed in our room, and then a big boy bed in his room when he lost his first tooth.

that is one reason we don't. DD is a kicker and a hitter and gonna grab your hair in the middle of the night, etc.

Maybe if we had a bigger bed, but she's not exactly small as it is.

when she was a newborn in a swaddle, she'd inchworm herself across the crib. The kid MOVES when she sleeps

We don't cosleep normally. But I was quite tired this morning...still tired actually.

I'm used to sharing my bed with my dh only and he's a bed hog too.

The first snuggles when they fall to sleep are great. Some nights, it turns into this...

this exactly, we have a her crib side-carred to our king sized bed Yes, the disclaimer made me giggle, and is why I am not awake until I am starting my second cup of coffee! Then I become knitting mommy!
